Married and working as a civil servant in a job centre, Sarah Millican's life couldn't have been more ordinary just over a decade ago. However, after the sudden break-up of her marriage, she decided to try something new and sign up for a writing workshop. It was to mark the beginning one of comedy's greatest success stories. Growing up as a child of the Miners' Strike which caused immense financial hardship for her family and a victim of bullying, Sarah's early years were far from easy. She had always been clever and creative, but had never managed to find the outlet for it. It wasn't until her thirties that she was finally recognised in spectacular fashion, as she went on to win the Best Newcomer Award after the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008. A few years later, her first DVD's sales broke all records for a female comedian. Sarah's brand of Geordie warmth and humility mixed with a natural edginess and willingness to talk about all aspects of everyday life has won her millions of fans. She manages to push the boundaries while still seeming like your best friend, and it remains the great secret of her success. She is well on her way to 'national treasure' status. This is the story of how a shy, unassuming woman from South Shields became the Queen of British comedy.

Hilarious, heartwarming and inspirational, this is the number 1 Sunday Times bestselling autobiography by comedian Sarah Millican. The funniest book of the year! ***** 'The naughtiest, helpiest, laughieoutloudiest and goodest book I've ever done reading on. Give that girl a banana!' DAWN FRENCH SARAH MILLICAN'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH, FEEL NORMAL AND PROBABLY SNIFF YOUR LEGGINGS. Part autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post divorce. If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR BOOK. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. 'Of course Sarah Millican's book will make you laugh out loud, but there are moments where she will touch you deeply. The dirty bitch.' KATHY BURKE
